Meet The Product
Biostar was always one of those underrated brands in the PC hardware industry right form their inception. While they never really aimed for taking any records or produce an extremely good looking motherboard what they aimed for is making a strong reliable motherboard at a very affordable price point However sometimes they do decide to throw in some bling into the motherboards they make, today we will be taking a look at one such motherboard.
Presenting the Biostar Z170 GT7
Starting with the packaging itself, the box comes with a black carbon fibre design all over in tune to its “Racing Series” nomenclature. The front of the box is clean with only the Racing logo and the motherboard name and a few features that the design team thought would be worth mentioning.
The interesting part, however is on the overleaf where we find a host of information regarding what Biostar included in the Z170 GT7 including specific DIY features among other things.
Opening the front flap we finally see the board in its full glory, the packaging is pretty common among every manufacturers with Biostar being no exception.
